It’s here! Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers for bloggers are coming in thick and fast. I’m sure your inbox is swamped right now with big shiny offers. But which ones should you be snapping up?
Read on to get the lowdown and make sure you get the most out of Black Friday deals for bloggers…
Black Friday Deals For Bloggers
There are some terrific deals for bloggers through Black Friday and Cyber Monday and most deals last from the start of the week before Black Friday through to Cyber Monday itself.
There may be some benefit holding out until the actual day of Black Friday or Cyber Monday but there are no guarantees. Most offers are consistent through the offer period.
Companies will just try to whip you up into a frenzy in the lead up to Black Friday but it’s unlikely the deals will improve or change.
In this buying frenzy it’s easy to end up buying things you don’t need that won’t help your blogging right now. I find myself wasting money every year so it’s best to make a plan and stick to it.
List out what will help or what is essential over the next few months for starting or growing your blog. There’s no point buying a course, theme or extra hosting if you don’t seriously need it.
If you’re a newbie starting your first blog all you really need is hosting. Paying for a theme is not essential starting out although with some of the Black Friday blogging deals it can be tempting to splash out.
Just be harsh with yourself. Ask yourself: Will this product help my blog? Do I really need it now or in the next few months? If not avoid those shiny offers…
Black Friday Hosting Deals
It’s a time of year when companies go crazy with online offers for hosting deals. So if you’re starting a blog or maybe a second blog Black Friday can be the time to do it.
To get the best deal go with the hosting company that suits your current needs. For example if you’re a newbie blogger, you’ll want to start with an easy to use, affordable hosting plan such as Bluehost.
